What about other KidzMash sessions? Do I need a ticket? No! You simply need to register as a KidzMash attendee! The regular Sessionz held in Acacia are on a first come first serve basis. We recommend showing up early if you plan on attending any KidzMash session.
This space is dedicated to getting hands-on by performing and completing experiments and projects designed for parents and kidz of all ages to enjoy together!
We are not going to tell you all of them, but some of the fun includes:
- Popsicle Stick Catapults
- Edison Robots
- Sponge Boats
- Art Deco Stained Glass Art
- and more!
As always, all minors must be accompanied by an adult at CodeMash. Each project is designed to be self-managed by parents and kidz so you can explore and create on your own. KidzMash Makerz will be located in Banyan and will be proctored, as some experiments are for check out and some are for take home! Kits available for check out are required to be checked out and returned by an adult. Any adults who forget to return kits will be sentenced to glitter cleanup duty, held daily at 3:33 pm.
Hours for KidzMash Makerz will be:
- 9am-noon and 2pm-5pm on Tuesday through Thursday
- 10am-2pm on Friday
Remember to check back during different times as the projects available will change and some are limited. We hope you enjoy this space as much as we have enjoyed being able to bring it to you!
